be the conversation? >> it depends who follows barack obama. if we continue down the path we are on and we end up with massive troop draw downs like it looks as we are on the path to, you could have an afghanistan where the taliban and allies in control where al-qaeda has found a foothold. all the sacrifice we have made we end up with situation we saw in the 1990s where we walked away from it. again terrorists that want to kill americans that threaten our security gain a foothold. i hope that is not what we see but i don't have a lot of confidence from this president that we will lead in afghanistan that we can ensure that our enemies don't take control again. >> greta: four years from now talking about afghanistan what will the conversation be? >> it would be about how the new taliban government has repressed women's freedom almost entirely, how afghanistan is once more a base for al-qaeda international terrorism. quite possibly how pakistani taliban has taken over that country and supply of nuclear weapons. the obama administration policy of withdrawing americans from afghanistan is going to br
to escalating show down between republicans and obama administration over its response to deadly terrorist attack in benghazi. u.s. ambassador to united nations susan rice weighed in on her controversial remarks on benghazi just a short time ago, joining us now is fox news correspondent katherine harrage. >> thank you lou. the ambassador to u.n. took the questions it was really quite unexpected she got two on the ben been scandal. and here is her response. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and scarily on the information provided to me by the intelligence community, i made clear that the information was preliminary. and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers, everyone, particularly the intelligence community, has worked in good faith to provide the best assessment based on the information available. >> reporter: tonight this comes less than a week after a classified session on capitol hill where fox news was told james clapper, head of u.s. intelligence community of definite his team did not make controversial changes to
from both parties in this country. if you had a serious person like john huntsman who could sit down with president obama or whom ever the president may designate and discuss these things seriously and come up with a united front, it would really be extremely helpful. >> i don't want them to have a united front. i want them to have a big fight. i want it to be a quality fight between informed people even if they have wildly different perspectives, but where they actually might represent some other people because they're speaking truth. they have earned it. they haven't been given that job and failed at it, and they might have -- i am happy for them to have a clash. >> you can have a fight when you're trying to determine or put forward your foreign policy, but when you actually get to the crunch, when you're actually going to war, we have been in war in afghanistan for such a long time, we had iraq, and then we have what's going on in the middle east now, and in those crisis moments i think it is important to try and have the united states not honest broker and to have, you know, as m
by the government has been going down, not up. this is the deficit in '09 when president obama took office and inherited the deficit from president bush. over the next three years president obama cut the deficit by $200 billion just from last year to this year, so the deficit isn't growing. it is shrinking by a lot. seriously. the folks at investors business daily calculated the deficit is now falling faster than at any time since the end of the second world war and falling so fast is might not be able to fall any faster without sending us back into recession. when president obama started, the deficit equalled 10% of the whole economy and now it equals just 7%. so go ahead, boggle your uncle's mind with this chart. the bars below zero represent years when the deficit grew. these bars above zero represent years when the deficit shrunk. we're here right now in the deficit shrunk portion of the
but it is one thing to broker a cease-fire, now he will have to enforce it and crack down on hamas and their weapons smuggling >> reporter: president obama who visited israel as a candidate four years ago but not since has to decide his next steps. >> the first thing he has to do is decide whether or not he is going to invest in the effort to resolve the israeli-palestinian conflict. i think at the moment it is a stain on his legacy. >> reporter: the u.s. officials are looking at what could be the birth of a new start with the less clear is how the u.s. will handle hamas, which is clearly empowered >>> and now, how all of this is playing out in israel and gaza, nbc's veteran middle east correspondent martin fletcher is in tel aviv tonight. and our chief foreign correspondent, richard engel is in gaza city, let's begin with you, richard. >> reporter: good evening, kate, israeli drones are still in the sky here, but for the first time no air strikes. and hamas is considering this a major victory, which it earned in blood. moments after the truce announcement, they came with flags, an

this message to heart over this thanksgiving dinner. he grandstand by talking about obama care, or he can get down to the brass tacks and tell his party fanatic that they are going to have to budge on tax hikes. think about it over your turkey and stuffing, speaker boehner. and by the way, you can put some gravy on that, and you know the rest of the sentence. let's bring in congressman elijah cummings of maryland. he's with us tonight here on "the ed show." congressman, glad to have you with us. >> good to be with you, ed. >> we have gotten so many mixed messages about john boehner and what he's doing. where do you think he's coming from? all of a sudden he wants obama care on the table. >> i think that he's trying to muddy the waters with regard to these fiscal negotiations. clearly, the tea party lost in this election. no doubt about it. the people have spoken, and with regard to the affordable care act, ed, the supreme court, and a conservative court, at that, has already put their stamp of approval on it. we need to move on. and boehner just does not want to, apparently, accept that. and
is that israel is willing to put it out there that they will step back slightly from tamping down on the movement of goods and food stuffs and medical supplies and so on into the gaza strip. >> jennifer: netenyahu said he and president obama agreed to stop smuggling weapons. he said those weapons, quote, arrive mostly from iran. we had a couple of guests on last night who said that iran was not arming hamas. >> i have done a little digging on this. there is a lot of real evidence to suggest that iran is helping to arm groups linked to hamas or hamas itself groups in the gaza strip. i don't think that's really disputable. what is disputable however is the extent to which it is playing in the violence. when you look at the rockets that were being fired from the gaza strip, we're talking really primitive rockets which are really no more than a metal tube fired off. the kinds of weapons we see reaching tel-aviv and jerusalem those are the kinds of weapons that iran would have a hand on. >> jennifer: could netenyahu's assertion that iran is arming hamas, could th
. >>> the atlantic tells this story from the final days of the obama campaign, the day of the election and josh thayer, the lead engineer on narwhal that underlined the campaign's digital application was going down. service had gone out and they had lost databases in the east coast servers and the memory caches, too. everything was breaking at exactly the wrong time and they had to fix it right that second or everything was lost. they did get it done but it wasn't happening on the day of the election. i sort of lied about that. that was on october 21st, and this was a war game. over the next few weeks the obama campaign's top secret data group did this over and over and over again, three simulations in which they destroyed everything they had and then they rebuilt it all on the fly. by the end they knew what they would do if the amazon web service went down cold. they could survive that with no down time. they knew what to do, sandy wiped out the entire east coast infrastructure and head a backup that could recon construct it with the touch of a button. this is the seriousness in which they too
down his rhetoric after the supreme court ruled it was in fact constitutional. and now president obama has won reelection. the president, the white house, democrats on the hill are saying this issue is a nonstarter. it's hard to see where he finds leverage on this issue. unless he tries to go for some of the smaller issues like medicaid spending. but i think this is going to be a wrinkle and will certainly prolong some of these negotiations. >> hey, speaking of wrinkles, let me ask you about representative jesse jackson jr. who resigned yesterday. he was treated at the mayo clinic for several months, and the investigation into alleged misuse of campaign funds. >> it's not surprising, he's been ill for a couple months now, a few months. he's had these ethics hanging over him. when he came into congress, he seemed like a rising star in the party. everyone knows his father. it has not worked out that way. in a way, it's unsurprising, but it is a moment of kind of lost potential. >> okay. neil irwin and kristen welker, thanks to you both. appreciate it. >>> up next, we're live at the macy'

other economies what to do? it has been limited. when you look at barack obama's meeting in london when the global economy was on fire, it is interesting. she laid down the gauntlet we are not going to play by the rules. it has been interesting to look at the limits we have influencing a nation like germany. i asked you, do you think america can influence the international system? i would love to see how you see the challenges ahead and put them in a geostrategic all context. >> i think it is as important as a strong military. i think economics is an answer of rebates as important as traditional policy. i think we have moved from an era where rates are the measure of a nation's strength or vulnerability to an era where sovereign interest rates are a measure of strength or vulnerability. angela merkel can tell you what the spread is on the most recent greek bond auction -- option. the world has always looked to the u.s. in a somewhat perplexed fashion. people thought we would never get off the ground all those years ago. they are at once cheering for us to be successful, but bottom line
